Editorial Reviews

All of your favorite Pokémon characters are back and are joined for the first time by the legendary Pokémon Celebi and Suicune in this latest exciting Pokemon adventure! In order to escape a greedy Pokémon hunter, Celebi must use the last of its energy to travel through time to the present day. Celebi brings along Sammy, a boy who had been trying to protect it. Along with Ash, Pikachu, and the rest of the gang, Sammy and Celebi encounter an enemy far more advanced than the hunter left behind in the past. This new enemy possesses a Pokeball called a "Dark Ball," which transforms the Pokémon it captures into evil and far stronger creatures. When Celebi is captured, the fate of the entire forest is threatened. Let POKÉMON 4EVER transport you to a world of adventure as Ash, Suicune, and the rest take action to save the day!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! January 22, 2003
Far from liking this movie, I've seen it three times, which I think makes it obvious that no, I didn't like it, I LOVED IT! The animation is wonderful, just as good, if not better than the 3rd installment, The Spell of the Unown. There are new characters, new Pokemon and new twists and turns. You even learn a little bit about Professor Samuel Oak! The only let down to the movie is the immense use of computer animation, maybe even too much of it and it's not blended with the animation as well as it could have been, but's that's perfectly easy to ignore when you look at the movie in it's entirety. The animation, like I said, was wonderful. All the original characters return, Ash, Misty, Brock and Pikachu who are joined by a little boy named Sam. Team Rocket returns though we meet a new member whose downright evil compared to the last bad guys we've been introduced to in the past films and TV series, he's even worse than Mewtwo was in the 1st movie. So if you liked movies 1-3 along with Mewtwo Returns you'll rave about this one! Take note that the mini movie isn't played in theaters, it's only on the DVD, but it's pretty cute all the same and VERY funny. So there you have it, one of the best Pokemon creations yet, and with a 5th and even 6th movie on the way, who knows what could happen!

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not 4ever... March 18, 2003
After a short, limited release in theaters last year, Pokemon 4Ever is finally coming to video courtesy of Miramax. And while it's not the vast improvement to the previous Warner Bros DVD releases we were hoping for, it is still a decent offering.
The story, basically, is that Ash and company come across a boy named Sam and a Celebi, who have traveled 40 years from the past. But before Celebi can bring Sam back to his own time, it is captured by the Iron Mask Marauder, who captures Celebi using a Dark Ball, and transforms it into a destructive monster. While the Marauder and Celebi destroy the forest, Ash and Sam must try and save Celebi. There are some surprisingly emotional scenes in the movie, especially towards the end as we find out the fate of Celebi and Sam's relationship with Ash.
The DVD offers trailers for this movie and the Japanese trailer for the fifth movie, as well as previews for other Miramax titles. Fans will be pleased to know that the Pikachu short has been restored for the DVD, and as usually, it's pretty funny and features plenty of cute Pokemon. It also a multi-angle animation progression feature, but the footage shown is very brief; each of the four segments clock in at barely under a few seconds, if that. One major complaint about this DVD is that despite the fact that this is the fourth Pokemon feature, it is still only presented on DVD in FULLSCREEN. There are many instances in the movie where a character is speaking, but you can't see him or her, since they are cropped off the screen. I'd hoped this unfortunate tradition was left behind with Warner Bros, but the curse follows the series to Miramax. Listen up, Miramax, we don't mind the black bars on the screen, we really don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Movie!!! October 20, 2002
By Nicole
I have already seen this movie twice at the theaters. I was amazed on how well the movie was made. Lets face it, usually after an original movie comes out, everything after it usually isnt all that great. Pokemon is definitly the exeption. The story line of coming 40years into the future (into ashes time) with a time traveling pokemon was difinitly different, but thats what makes it so good. At least everything is an original with
pokemon. well it starts out in past with a young boy named sammy who ends up helping celebi get away from a pokemon hunter. well when sammy was running to get celebi as far away as he could, celebi used the last of his energy to time travel to ashes time. without getting to detailed, ash & friends come in contact with sammy & build a strong friendship, at the same time of restoring celebi's strengh, but then someone even worse than a pokemon hunter comes into play. he is the new member of team rocket. he catches celebi in a "dark ball" which turns pokemon evil. Now it is upto ash,sammy,suicune,& friends to help celebi & save the forrest, but can they do it... for the dramatic,heart stopping, yet inspirational ending, you need to go see it for yourself. I dont want to ruin it for you as it makes the movie worth seeing over & over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars the greatest pokemon movie ever! August 3, 2002
A Kid's Review
I saw the trailer of this movie and read the story...I think that this movie is great.Its about a pokemon called celebi who can travel in time.It all starts when a rare pokemon hunter tries to capture celebi a boy tried to save him but celebi time travelled in time and took the boy with him.Celebi time travelled into the future and thats where the boy and celebi met ash,pikachu,brock and misty.They took celebi to the pokemon center and nurse whoever(not nurse joy)said that he has no power left.When they got out(without celebi)they found another hunter.He said give me the pokemon with you boy.When celebi heard them having a fight he went out and started helping them.But the hunter had a ball called a dark ball.When you capture a pokemon with the ball it turns them evil.He caught celebi with ball and celebi turned evil.They battled celebi but they couldnt win.Thats when suicune apeared and he helped them.
